Cirrus Dental Group was founded in 2016 by Dr. David Hart who has practiced in Great Bend for over 12 years. In 2015, Dr. Hart was able to realize his childhood dream, as well as his late father's life long dream, of becoming a pilot. This resulted in the purchase of his first aircraft, a used Cirrus SR22. The ability to utilize the airplane for travel with staff allowed Dr. Hart to expand and offer dental services to the extremely underserved population of Southwest Kansas, Southeast Colorado, and the panhandle of Oklahoma for over 6 years. Dr. Hart's late mother suffered from undiagnosed severe sleep apnea. This led Dr. Hart and the staff to become educated and add the treatment of sleep apnea via oral appliance therapy to the practice. In March 2022 Dr. Hart was appointed an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. He instructs there one week out of each month.
